Nothing bubbafied. The guns that came from the factory lacking all aesthetic properties.

I'll start the list off.

Rifle: French Berthier (Think Mosin Nagant but uglier)
Pistol: Hi Point 9mm comp (The Liberator gets a free pass from me on this one)
Shotgun: Mossberg 695 (Something about bolt-shotguns seriously displease me)

Hey you heathens. My Hi-Point may not look good in a prom dress, but she can do everything that needs doin'.

Ugly? Rifle... SKS with Bubba treatment. Pistol... Glock (all of um). Shotty... I'll say it. I ain't scared. Humpback (Browning A-5).

Rifle: tie between FAMAS and Steyr AUG. I know some people think they're sweet, and I'm sure they are functionally fine rifles, but I find something innately unattractive about bullpups.

Shotgun: anything done in camo pattern. Again, YMMV.

Pistol: Ruger P-series. Gotta case of the fug.

edit: are we limiting this to "reputable" manufacturers only? Otherwise the pot metal garbage guns will sweep the pistol category

SS,

Yep, the Savage110 my not look great but at almost half the cost of some of the (snobby) guns it can shoot with all of them. The guy next to me may have a rem., win. or whatever, but if you can't shoot it well it doesn't matter how much you spend.

The rest of the posters:

As for the Hi-point, mine will hit what I'm aiming at. Yep, ugly to but it performs and if it breaks I can get it fixed for no more than shipping cost. Bash them if you want but they work. They are heavy to.

Both are not good looking guns but if the BG is looking at the muzzle end do you think he cares how it looks?

And the type 94. The Japanese must have made Ugly a design requirement on their pistols. The ability to accidentally discharge when bumped and shoot the owner was just a plus.

Prepare to get unlucky! I don't know, in a way I think the VP70 is a pretty cool looking pistol. It has that scifi/futurist look that was popular in the 70s. Yet 5 minutes later I can look at it and agree it is hideous.

The conflicting feelings it causes just makes me want one. Hmm....I guess the previous poster was right, guns really are like women!

Rifle I am not sure what it is called but there was a rifle at a local gun shop the other day with a Side mounted T shaped bolt handle. It pulled strait back instead of being rotated up and back. Sorry I can't give a better description. I seem to remember it being chambered in 7.5Xsomething
